The New Trailside Cookbook
100 Delicious Recipes for the Camp Chef
Paperback ISBN: 1770851895
An essential cookbook packed with easy, lightweight, high energy, gourmet recipes and comprehensive outdoor cooking information for hikers, day-trippers, canoeists and wilderness campers. The New Trailside Cookbook is the result of a unique partnership between canoe enthusiast Kevin Callan and food and nutrition consultant Margaret Howard. With Margaret creating delicious, healthy recipes for the camp kitchen and Kevin providing the how-to information, it is a perfect match -- like having Red Green and Julia Child outside with you. Say goodbye to bland, canned meals and hello to satisfying, fireside dishes. This comprehensive book covers everything from making great camp coffee to variations of GORP (Good Old Raisins and Peanuts), from foraging for wild edibles to mastering meals after the ice melts to living off the land. Hikers, kayakers, day-trippers, wilderness and interior campers alike will find options and advice in this handy, pocket-sized guide. Recipes clearly indicate what preparation can be done at home, making cooking at camp quick and easy. Dehydrated options (and detailed instructions) are listed for campers outstaying their cooler's capacity. Dishes include hearty morning starts like Peanut Butter Banana Muffins; easy lunches like Mushroom Quinoa Salad; quick pickups such as Apricot Sunflower Seed Cereal Bars; dinners that make the most of fresh catch, like Herb-stuffed Grilled Fish; and sweet endings such as Roasted Rhubarb with Honey and Rosemary. In addition, there is a section dedicated to cold-weather winter camping, and for those only outdoors for a day or two, a chapter on Weekend Gourmet is the place to go for special meals. Kevin's wilderness skills and Margaret's culinary experience combine in this book to please outdoor enthusiasts of all ages, levels and outdoor locations.

How to Catch a Pig
Lots of Cool Stuff Guys Used to Know but Forgot About the Great Outdoors
Paperback ISBN: 0061688495
Way back before man abandoned the woods for the cities—and traded his hunting rifle for a BlackBerry—he had to know how to do certain things to survive. He had to trap and build and grow things, using his calloused hands and valuable knowledge passed down through the generations. For most men today, these once-cherished skills are as dead as the dodo. But take heart! Now guys can reconnect with those less-complicated times, rediscover how to embrace adventure, and appreciate the outdoor life. Denis Boyles, principal author of A Man's Life, has culled a wealth of essential, nearly lost manly endeavors from U.S. government pamphlets, century-old publications, and ancient scouting manuals to help reeducate us in the fine macho arts of: - Tracking a bobcat - Splicing a rope - Rescuing someone from drowning - Sending a smoke signal - Building a log cabin And much, much, much more—including, of course, how to catch a pig!
